I’m looking down at my nails and thinking how badly I need a manicure. There are never enough hours in the day to get everything done that NEEDS to get done, let alone what I would “like” to get done.
Did you know that there are dangers associated with getting a manicure? It may make you think twice about using your “me” time at a nail salon and opt to do it at home.
Manicure Precautions and tips to make that beautiful manicures last!
DON’T CUT YOUR CUTICLES – There is no need to, unless they are dead. Use a cuticle oil and gently push them back. They protect your fingers against dirt and bacteria. The cuticle oil is a perfect preventative against hang nails too!
LONGEVITY: To keep your polish looking fresh, apply top coat every 2 – 3 days. Try the OPI one mentioned above. Essie also has a great “no chip” top coat as well. To aid in drying my nails a bit faster, I apply Sally Hansen’s Insta Dry.
